Save Our House
My name is Nicole. I have a five year old daughter named Sidney and the two of us are living with my parents. I'm registered to start college this September to be able to build a better life for the two of us. Living at my parents house is what makes going to college possible.
However, we are about to lose our home. My parents have gotten behind on their mortgage due to my step-dad's PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder). We can afford the mortgage payments now, but it's the arrears and the deadline that is the problem.
To make matters even worse the company my mom had worked at for 5 and a half years laid her off a few weeks ago due to restructuring. She's in the process of finding a new job as of right now.
We all love our home very much. My parents have worked really hard to be able to purchase this house, and losing it now would be devastating for all of us. We've had a difficult past few years and could really use some help right now.
The initial amount we needed was $10 000, through working hard as a team and selling some of our things we managed to get $7000 together. We're $3000 short. The deadline is April 4th. I just don't know what we will do if we can't get the money. We honestly don't have anywhere we can go.
If we don't pay them soon, we will all be forced to move. Please help us keep our home.
You can read my mom's story on her blog:
Also, I just wanted to let everyone know that my mom was able to get our deadline extended until April 12 to help give us more time because as of now we still don't have enough.
But I'm staying positive.
